    Strange Rumble my02

    My car is making a strange rumbling or rattling sound that sounds like it is comming from below the intercooler or from the transmission. The sound is really noticable at idle but not as much while driving. It also quiets when I push in the clutch but Im not sure if its just causes less engine vibration. Can someone help me out? What should I be looking for?

    If it's a rattle that goes away when the clutch pedal is pushed in (this disengages the clutch) you might suspect the throw-out bearing.

    throwout bearing

    i just took my car to my friends autoshop. and he listened to the sound and he said it could be the throwout bearing. i was wondering if that could be a problem or could it wait to be replaced when i get the clutch done.

    The throw-out bearing is used to release the clutch. If it fails I don't see how the clutch can be released. I've had one fail while driving and I remember smoke and noise, but not many other details (other than it suddenly became time to change the clutch).
